Bapu of Rajasthan

W3C Home

This is a short video about a man named Papu who lives in Pushkar, India (a holy city in Rajasthan). He is a talented and ingenuitive musician. He comes from a long lineage of nomadic musicians named Bhopas. He learned to sing, and to play the ravanahatha from his mother and father, and they did so from theirs. He may be amongst the last generation to remember and perform these tunes. Soon, these ancient songs may be lost in the deserts of Rajasthan. This video is an effort to preserve a very small piece of a massive epic. Papu is a modern day Homer of sorts, traveling around and sharing stories from nothing but memory. With this in mind, I present to you, Papu of Pushkar.
